We’d like to inform you that we’re deprecating the use of
tags.guid in favour of using the entity’s guid (
entityGuid). This is directly related with the post on muting rules posted on the 29th Oct.
This is a consequence of the standardization of entity as the main concept to identify any single element in the New Relic One platform. With this change, we want to:
- Avoid any confusion caused by having different mechanisms to identify an entity.
- Deprecate current synchronization mechanisms between both ways of identifying an entity.
What does this mean to you? Not much, really. As of now, we recommend you run a quick check to see if you’re still using
tags.guid anywhere in your code, and replace it with
entity.guid for muting rules, and
entityGuid for NRQL queries. Please take into account that the final deprecation of
tags.guid is meant to happen by December 15, 2021."
